The Sonics - Here Are The Sonics
The kings of Garage Punk - The Sonics! So incredibly raunchy and loud! You'll feel cool as fuck listening to this at your local jukebox bar....

I didn't like the album upon first listen (I even deleted it), but I changed my mind after hearing The Witch again. I suppose the album may be a grower for some of you. Regardless, be sure to check it out
